Deirdre and Shaun in New York, NY

A couple throws a New York wedding that melds modern style with tradition

The bride's close ties to Harlem's Abyssinian Baptist Church made it the ideal spot for their ceremony. The historic air of the Gothic- and Tudor-style church was balanced with contemporary color: Bridesmaids, in tan dresses, carried bouquets of mango-colored calla lilies and cymbidium orchids.
